Franco-German Future Dialogue
If Europe is unable to advance without the Franco-German engine, the European crises have demonstrated that the relationship between France and Germany cannot be considered as an immutable achievement – it has to be constantly maintained and enriched. A new generation, succeeding the post-war one, is now in command of Franco-German cooperation. The Franco-German Future Dialogue thus wishes to provide tomorrow’s decision-makers of both countries with avenues to meet each other and to exchange ideas.
At the same time, the French and Germans must interact with their European neighbors and reflect together on the challenges facing the European Union. That is why, as of 2014, the Franco-German Future Dialogue participants will resort to other European member states.
Franco-German Future Dialogue encompasses two major axes. It maintains a social network of young French and German professionals and PhD students, giving them the space to debate and exchange on Franco-German and/or European issues, as well as to develop a joint vision of the future and publishes research essays
The Dialogue participants are talented, budding “officers” (economic, political, scientific, cultural, administrative). All have a particular interest in their partner country, with which they have developed a strong connection through their professional or academic career.
The Cerfa has organised Franco-German Future Dialogue annually since 2007 in cooperation with the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), and is supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation.
